My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

I just proposed a session on webmention badges and gamification for #IndieWeb Online West #OpenBadges

Let's talk linking and learning in networked speaces.

IndieWeb West, a remote conference rapidly approaches, and I just proposed a session on webmention badges.

For the last two years a group of us have explored how we could created a simple badging system using webmentions. One link, verifying that a second link contains evidence that meets specific criteria.

That's it. Two permalinks talking and veryifying each other. I want to continue this work at the IndieWeb summit.

At the same time we see new community members drawn to the old idea of indiemark, whihch was a way to self assess how far your personal site has come. I wonder if we can gamify this a bit more with automate badges.

Same with the test suites, what if stuff like Indiewebify.me awarded a badge when people past a test? These could stack until a person earns an "IndieWeb" button to display on theior site. The button could then link to a record of the test result.

@jpalfrey well tangentially Emmanuel Pratt did win an prize back in the day, his work is urban planning but looks like that is the closest @macfound got to anything digital this year.

So in chat I said I was built for binging. @schmarty came back and said it should be the tile of my memoir or something. @t then suggested a run of Breaking Badges...so naturally I had to make this: http://jgregorymcverry.com/breakingbadges.html

@johanbove ooh badges been around since about 2011 (way longer if you coutn video games, longer if you count scouts) when we began the work with @mozilla and This is just a way to own your credentials from your own domain.

@foss_j12 more importantly @concentricsky the team behind Badgr has values and data policies I can get behind. @ottonomy been a leader in since beginning.

I did just issue some badges in https://edu407.jgregorymcverry.com/badges.html but those my own design

Greg McVerry

@paulbogush @foss_j12 If I wanted a turn ket platform I would use Badgr https://badgr.io I have been fooling around with trying to badge from my own domain using webmentions. Keep it simple and on my site

Greg McVerry

Forget the presentation I want to know what is in @ottonomy's coffee folder.

Greg McVerry

Listening to @ottonomy discuss @mozilla transition of the backpack to @concentricsky. Couldn't pick a better partner than @badgrteam
